After New York and Ek Tha Tiger like movies now Bajrangi Bhaijaan is another beautiful creation by director Kabir Khan. He started his career from documentary films and Kabul Express was his directorial debut feature film released in 2006.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a cross-border drama. It seems that it is an attempt to improve India-Pakistan relationship. There are several movies in the similar lines but this is little more emotional since a small cute girl is the centre of attraction in the story.
The story is about Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi alias Bajrangi (Salman Khan). He is basically from Pratapgarh but came to Delhi for job search at the residence of his father’s friend Dayanand (Sarat Saxena) where he falls in love with his daughter Rasika (Kareena Kapoor Khan). A 6 years old Pakistani girl Shahida was lost in India. Bajrangi found her and takes that girl with him. She is dumb, so can not reveal her identity but after several twists, finally Bajrangi takes Shahida at her parent’s home in Pakistan and thus it becomes the happy ending of this movie.
Aseem Mishra’s magic of cinematography can be seen in this film. The sky view of Kashmir is beautifully shown in the beginning and also in the climax. The kouwali by Adnan Sami (Bhar Do Jholi…) is another beauty of this film. Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the role of a Pakistani journo has done a good job. Although Kareena has not really very much roles to play but she made her presence felt.
This is a very balancing story, a complete emotional drama and gives a good mes- sage to the audience. This is a must watch movie so do not miss it.
